“He will not let your foot slip – he who watches over you will not slumber;
indeed, he who watches over Israel will neither slumber nor sleep.”

Aren’t you glad that God does not sleep?  I sure am!  I think it’s awesome that He’s available for us 24/7 – even in spite of those times when I’ve been so busy He would have seen a “Closed” sign hanging in my window. Continue reading
